All her life Diana hasn’t hit it off with the fellas. In 3rd grade, she kicked her crush in the crotch and her dating life didn’t improve from there.
What starts as a quick look into why Diana doesn’t date much or like sex, ends up a hilarious and heartbreaking journey through consent, intimacy, sex, and relationships. Personifying over 35 characters, Diana delivers a fast-paced, powerhouse performance filled with wit, poignancy and vulnerability, as she explores themes of the psychological fall out of sexual assault, authority figure failures, family abuse cycles, love, death/resurrection, dating mishaps, and many more.
In Shattered, Diana uses comedy to take us through tragedy, as she tells the tale of one individual picking up the broken pieces of herself and putting them back together again.
